Behind the wall: integration in proven Geberit installation systems.
In front of the wall a variety of design covers and space for architecture.


For Geberit we have designed various shower systems including installation and drainage. What they all have in common is a design that serves interior design and improvements for both end customers and installers.

We’ve thought long and hard about showers for Geberit. Using a mixture of context analysis and surveys, we’ve been identifying which aspects are most important to users — not just with respect to showering, but also cleaning and the wider configuration within the home. We are convinced that the shower area must be conceived as an integral part of the built space, so we style the visible elements discreetly and in such a way that they complement the architectural qualities of the bathroom. This is only possible if the plumbing system that lies behind — or beneath — the shower has been factored into the bathroom design from the outset; the water and waste interfaces cannot be allowed to compromise the topology of the room or its surfaces.

The on-site installation phase is generally critical to a product’s success, and this is why facilitating the job of planners and fitters has always been key in our work with Geberit. We ask ourselves: how can individual stages of the installation process be made simpler and safer, or even cut out altogether? Can the amount of time other craftsmen spend waiting to get started on their part of the job be reduced, or could installation of a particular section even be done by someone from another trade, as that would fit better with their skills and workflow? The CleanLine’s run-off surface can be cut to any length and installed at the same time as the tiles are laid, for example; not only does this create a stronger and better fix to the floor, it means it is also seamlessly integrated into the tiling pattern.

While taking a shower is one of life’s pleasures, we haven’t turned a blind eye to the less agreeable aspects: someone has to do the cleaning as well. Our approach aims to get as much as possible done with a quick wipe of the surfaces, reducing the amount of deep cleaning required. Our design really gets started where most people’s stops — behind the cover panels. Top-quality, unfussy design, and not an ugly indentation or seam in sight. Even the comb insert, which keeps the drain free of hair, is a carefully planned feature: there’s no need to wait until you’re forced to scrape a clump of hair out of a clogged drain; you can simply remove the drain cover and the comb insert whenever you like, give it a quick wipe down with toilet paper, rinse it out and you’re good to go.

In preliminary discussions we develop a stance about the architectural and design driven role of the shower in the bathroom.
Systematic approach to sensible installation alternatives with a topology matrix.
Comfort check with bare feet to check the drain geometry in a mock-up.
Use analysis comparing hair sieves and comb geometries for cleaning.
Testing minimal size and tight space geometries with cloths.
Checking proportions and usability of the wall side drainage using a fullsize cardboard mock-up.
Notes on mounting procedures.
Designing for plumbers: emphasizing use, interaction and status (open/close)
